Study: One Third Of 3DS Owners Regret Buying It Early

Despite being compensated by 20 free games, some of them exclusive, a survey found that more than 30% of Nintendo 3DS owners fell angry and regret buying it before the price drop.

Japanese games site 4Gamer surveyed 6,500 3DS owners to reach that verdict.

The survey also found that 49.4% of the respondents believe that the current Nintendo 3DS games lineup is not adequate and that they feel disappointed with the system and its upcoming games that have been announced so far.

Surprisingly, 45.7% of the respondents indicated that they are either not planning, or on the fence about buying Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7 when they are released.

As for those who don't own a 3DS yet, only 5.4% stated that the price drop has swayed them into buying one while 15.3% said that they would never buy one anyway. Another 42.1% of the respondents who don't own a 3DS blamed the disappointing games lineup for delaying their purchase decision.

More worrying for Nintendo, 65.2% of that last group indicated that they will "probably" buy a PlayStation Vita when it is released this year.

going for vita when it droooops the price very low and also when it's last version comes out, like the psp 3000. Bought mine for 120euro ^^, checked the game list, aaaaaall the emulators it has (even gameboy advance there, the best of every world lol). Hope ti will also play ps2 games (praying.. ehe) what else a gamer wants?

mega anti nintendo games

why does this site always bash nintendo? who is pulling the strings here and are megagames being paid money to do this, just like ea did to get sites to mark down their competitors games? I for one dont care about the price cut because i got it at cost price through my work.

And now im getting 20 games free and i also get the 3ds titles at cost price. So i DONT loose out :P
Love the 3ds to bits and always will. You wont spoil my enjoyment megagames


Well that's all good for YOU but what about the rest of the people who brought a 3DS at full price expecting something great only to be greeted by some crappy games. This website isn't bashing nintendo, nintendo is bashing themselves, megagames is just here to report about it! Besides nintendo games are for little children and big bitches which category are you under?
